Caroline Kennedy “Dud”?

January 22, 2009

Fox & Friends co-hosts Gretchen Carlson and Steve Doocy gave Caroline Kennedy little comfort the morning after she unexpectedly withdrew from the Governor Paterson’s consideration for Hilliary Clinton’s open NY Senate seat for “personal reasons.” However, Brian Kilmeade, who had recently spoken with JFK’s daughter, kindly commented, “Maybe, she was really, really having a hard time with personally wondering if she really wanted this job in the first place.” Immediately, Gretchen replied, “Oh, I don’t think that’s what it was.”

Later Gretchen further opined, “I think that she had this job in the tank along time ago and she messed it up.” Steve interjected, “She was a dud!” Gretchen continued, “She doesn’t have the personal charisma and skills to be a politician: Let’s just face it!”

Brian, you may have a slight change for a follow-up with Kennedy on your radio show: However, don’t count on booking her for F&F!

Biden’s Bite: Puppy Pick Message?

December 14, 2008

Vice President-elect Joe Biden appeared to send a subliminal message to Obama bashers: smiling, kissing Joe still has his bark and his bite. Picking a purebred German shepherd pup for himself before Barack Obama gets his children’s canine, seemed a subtle reminder that no matter how cuddly and gentle Obama may be, that Biting Biden will be on guard.

Opining on Biden’s buy, Fox & Friends co-hosts Aly, Dave, and Clayton seemed to agree that it was a bid to get back in the public eye. Ironically, in the next show, America’s News HQ, FNC displayed a similarly colored German shepherd watching over JFK, Jackie, Little John, and Caroline apparently at the Kennedy compound. The author began to wonder if Biden’s selection was a part of a larger play: remember, the Obama team has patterned itself after Reagan’s resonance, Kennedy’s Camelot, and Clinton’s politics.

In the new Obama administration, Biden will play a role. He may agree to a shrinking Veep script but he’ll be no shrinking violet.

Gretch: Gimme Some Skin!

December 8, 2008

Emotively exuberant, Fox & Friends co-host, Gretchen Carlson, this morning exhorted Pundit Pit participant, the Daily Beast’s John Batchelor,  to give her a high five. After his postulation that New York Governor David Paterson would likely pick Caroline Kennedy as Hillary Clinton’s replacement as junior NY U.S. Senator because of political expediency, Gretchen raised her hand and raved, “Best point of the day, John! Give me some skin!” The gray-haired columnist hesitantly lifted his hand and did so.

Her exchange reminded the author of her asking Shepard Smith for the secret handshake to make up with him after he dissed F&F over its coverage of a bogus airport threat: He looked at her with seeming disdain and said, “I don’t know the handshake.” Perhaps, more a propos is her seeking similar “skin” approbation from co-anchors Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on occasion: they both seem to respond reluctantly to her request with awkward attempts to acquiesce.

As a former Miss America who was inspired to enter the competition by the ebony beauty Vanessa Williams, the vanilla lovely need only to compete on her own terms. No need to chew the scenery for effect. Just be natural, Gretch!
